Double Dipping Pt. 2

During the first two weeks of May (2018) I was out. of. my. mind. I was determined to see as many warblers as I could. But as mentioned in my blog Warbler Madness, although I was on a warbler mission this year, I saw a number of other wonderful avian species and of course, I simply can’t go birding without checking out all the lovely spring blooms.

Birds and blooms go together and at times it can be quite the dilemma for me – do I look up or do I look down?   I’m lucky I work in a place where I can do both relatively easy, I have to say I’m pretty spoiled. As mentioned in my previous blog Double DippingThe New York Botanical Garden is ideal for both lovers of flora and feathered friends.
